FARNET Managing Authorities meeting, Brussels, 15-16 March 2016

MA meeting March 2016

The theme of the FARNET meeting for Managing Authorities and National Networks held on the 15-16 March 2016 was: “Streamlined and efficient delivery systems”.

It dealt with the tools and processes which demonstrated results during the past period, including for the launch of preparatory support, the selection of FLAGs and their strategies, and simplified cost options.

The meeting included an update from DG MARE on the state of play with regards to the implementation of the EMFF Operational Programmes and an overview of the challenges and opportunities ahead. A further session was dedicated to the setting-up of National Networks, making use of FARNET’s previous  experience and that of a number of MAs.

Finally, given the focus on results in the new programming period, a session was also dedicated to the implementation of monitoring and evaluation systems and gave participants the opportunity to discuss the type of support required in order to be more effective in monitoring and evaluating fisheries CLLD.
